The cast will perform hit songs from the Oscar- and Grammy-winning soundtrack. An orchestra will provide a live score for the film while it’s portrayed on a major motion picture screen.
The event will include a live scenery feature that shows projection mapping across the stage. Basically, the performance will be a digital product that will create an immersive experience.
“Sometimes it’s a frame, sometimes it’s an equivalent of scenery and sometimes it’s a costar,” director and co-producer Richard Kraft told the Los Angeles Times.
